A survivor

The weather was winter beautiful this morning; cold and clear with a blue sky, after heavy overnight rain. After weeks of grey, damp and windy weather I was inspired to take my camera out and see what I could find.

The roses should be dead at this time of the year but there has been little frost to kill them off so the odd buds continue to develop even amongst otherwise dead foliage. This one seemed worth capturing as the last rain dripped from it.
